Fodor's Expert Review Lamberts

$$ Central Austin, Downtown, and Capitol Area Barbecue Fodor's Choice

Smack in the middle of Second Street, Lamberts draws a broad range of downtown business crowds, local foodies, and tourists, for its stylish take on Texas barbecue. You know this isn't your father's barbecue joint when you hear Belle & Sebastian on the speakers instead of Willie or Waylon. Chimay beer is available on tap, and the Frito pie costs $10 and contains goat cheese. Appetizers range from Asian-style crispy wild boar ribs to broiled Gulf oysters with apple-smoked bacon. The restaurant, housed in a historic two-story 1873 brick building, features a lovely whitewashed brick interior, leather booths, and an upstairs bar with adjacent seating area and stage where bands perform weekly.
